Brazile said on “Fox News Sunday” that The Washington Post’s report on women’s allegations against Bloomberg is “extremely” damaging to his campaign. 

She added that she understands why some Democrats are backing Bloomberg because he has the resources to beat President TrumpDonald John TrumpDeSantis on Florida schools reopening: 'If you can do Walmart,' then 'we absolutely can do schools' NYT editorial board calls for the reopening of schools with help from federal government's 'checkbook' Mueller pens WaPo op-ed: Roger Stone 'remains a convicted felon, and rightly so' MORE but added his record made her “uncomfortable.”

“I mean I am uncomfortable with his policies in New York,” she said. “I understand he’s apologized. I get that. I’m for forgiveness. But I am extremely dismayed at the information I read over the weekend about the sexist work environment.”

Brazile, who joined the show’s panel, criticized Bloomberg’s support of stop-and-frisk policies which disproportionately targeted people of color in New York, saying it has taken him years to apologize for it. 

“He has the resources, but I’m very uncomfortable with his record,” she said.

Bloomberg has been gaining in national polls, coming in third in last week’s Morning Consult survey, but backlash against his record has stepped up in the last week. 

A recording surfaced of the former mayor defending stop and frisk in 2015, saying that "95 percent" of "murders and murderers and murder victims" are male minorities between 16 and 25 years old. 

Several Sunday show guests went after Bloomberg for his alleged remarks about women and the stop-and-frisk policy, including White House counselor Kellyanne ConwayKellyanne Elizabeth ConwaySources say DeSantis undercutting fundraising for Republican National Convention because of personal dispute: report Democrats see victory in Trump culture war Kellyanne Conway on Trump niece's book: 'I believe family matters should be family matters' MORE who said the former mayor’s comments were worse than Trump’s on the “Access Hollywood” tape.
